A little Asbestos History-

Asbestos was regarded, for many years, as an excellent material for these and other practical reasons and was installed in numerous buildings throughout the entire United Kingdom.
Although the first reported cases of asbestos-related health problems can be found as far back as the 1930s, it was not until the 1980s that direct action was taken on its usage, Firstly by a voluntary ban followed by legislation and eventual total ban in 1999. For these reasons, it is essential that asbestos located in the UK is managed in a safe manner or removed as per the current regulations.

Domestic areas covered by Asbestos regulations-
There are still numerous buildings in towns, villages and cities throughout the United Kingdom where asbestos is located.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 only specifies requirements for Non-Domestic premises constructed before 1999. However, all buildings, including domestic premises, have the potential to contain asbestos. Communal areas of Domestic and residential properties in London, Edinburgh and all of the UK are covered by the regulations. They therefore require an asbestos assessment to comply with current legislation. The same Asbestos removal regulations apply to these areas as well.

By using our independent, impartial, bespoke Asbestos consultancy service, we can help ensure you legally comply with the very latest HSE regulations

The regulations cover all types of Non-Domestic premises, Including Industrial units, Factories, Shops, Public houses, Hotels, Guesthouses, Churches, Farms, Offices, Hospitals, Schools, & Communal areas in flats & apartments.

Where major refurbishments or demolition of domestic premises are planned is yet another example where the CAR regulations apply. In these circumstances, an Asbestos Refurbishment/Demolition survey would be required to ensure that no contractors were exposed to asbestos-containing materials during their work. Any asbestos materials detected in such properties usually require the need for Asbestos removal to be conducted prior to work commencing.

All ASA surveys are tailored to meet the individual requirements of the client by offering bespoke and flexible solutions.
